Comic books (Comics)/animated series

Question
I download like the 1992 -1997 x-men animated series from like marvel.com or you tube, etc. I forgot. Should I should keep the flv on my storage site or should I buy the x-men animated series because I have not pay for it yet.  I not sure about that one.  I try to avoid pirated and copyright infringement here.

Answer
Henry,

I am not an authority on this; I can only give you my advice. I would say that it depends on where you got it from. If it's on Youtube, then it is probably okay. If it came from Marvel.com, and was free, then it is also okay (I mean legal).

If it's a pirate version from a torrent site, it is probably not legal. But I don't know if there are serious rules about animated shows. If you want to be completely certain, I would advise you to buy the series on DVD. That will also give you a better quality.

Expertise

I can answer questions about the *contents* of most superhero and sci-fi comics (and also fantasy/sword'n'sorcery like Elfquest and Conan the Barbarian) and also about the writers and artists, but not about the *condition* of your comics (i.e. I will not grade your comics or evaluate their value). I am very knowledgable about American comics in general, esp. Marvel, but also DC and indies. I cannot answer questions about Japanese manga comics, which I know very little about. The majority of my expertise spans from comics published between 1960 and 2000, but if you have questions about before or after those dates, I probably know enough to find the info you need.

Experience

I was an avid comic book collector from the early 1980s to around 2000 (and have still been buying little bits and pieces thereafter), and I still have my collection of 18,000+ comics, incl. some European ones (I hail from Denmark). I have been an active participant in comics fandom; I have written about comics in fanzines, APAzines, magazines and letter columns, and worked briefly in a comic shop (would love to have done that as a career, but here in Denmark we only have a couple of shops, so that opportunity is hard to come by). I have also attempted to write scripts for comics based on my own ideas - projects which I'm still working on.

Education/Credentials
I have studied Biology, English and history at university level.
